Eugene, Oregon family photographer: Sarah, Luke, Liam, and Magdalina

 What a perfect summer session! I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer day than at the beach. One of the reasons I love Eugene, Oregon is that it’s so close to all kinds of fun outdoor activities. We’re an hour from the mountains in one direction, and an hour from the ocean in the other, so quick day trips to fun places are super easy.

Sarah and Luke requested a beach location for their family photography session, so we met at Heceta Beach in Florence, Oregon last month. We got so lucky with the timing! The tide was out, and we found a bunch of tide pools that were just teeming with life, like big starfish and tiny little crabs. The kiddos and even dad were super interested in these natural wonders, so our photos took more of storytelling approach instead of a posed one. I love the spontaneity and family togetherness they convey! As a family photographer, I want your session to be genuine and reflect the unique and wonderful personalities of each family member. As such, although I’m happy to pose you if that’s the style you’re looking for, I’m also happy to just let the session unfold naturally. That’s what happened with this one, and we all had a great time.

We also got lucky with the weather. People say there’s never a bad day at the beach…but I can attest that there can be days that make it a little tough to do portrait photography! Fortunately, this wasn’t one of them. We had pretty good cloud cover which diffused the light nicely. Didn’t give us that golden light, but it still worked really well. Plus, it was warm and not very windy at all, so that made it easy for us to have fun and get some great shots.

In addition to getting to spend time at the beach, I also loved being able to meet the whole family! I photographed Magdalina when she was a newborn (obviously that’s been a while ago—she has gotten so big and is such a cutie), so I already knew Sarah and Magdalina, but I hadn’t met the guys yet, so it was great to meet Luke and Liam. What a wonderful family, and what a fun day!
